Many of our agency clinicians are new therapists, recent graduates with Masters degrees, so these are folks who have unique needs around training, getting used to the ins-and-outs of the work, maintaining a professional caseload, and working with a diversity of clientele. And  that’s before we get to the standards and requirements put on them by MassHealth, documentation standards, the productivity model, and other topics that we have discussed and will discuss in Equity in the Agency Experience. Central to and overseeing all of this are clinical supervisors. Supervisors play such an important role in the functioning of agencies. This conversation addresses possibilities for providing support to supervisors.
